Star Wars Land Expected to Open at Walt Disney World in 2019

It is a day full of exciting news.  We just learned that Avatar – The World of Pandora is set to open in May of this year.  We also finally got another big question answered:  when Star Wars Land is expected to open.  According to Disney Parks Blog today during the Walt Disney Company Q1 FY17 Earnings call, it was announced that the Star Wars-themed lands at Disneyland in California and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World would open in 2019!  No more information that that is given about the timeline, but it is nice to know that there is a date that the crews are marching toward.


The Star Wars lands at the parks will be the largest single-themed expansions for Disneyland and Walt Disney World, so this will be a real feat for Disney to accomplish.  The lands are expected to completely transport guests to the Star Wars universe with familiar characters, ships and lands along with themed dining, shopping, costumes, attractions and more.  We can’t wait to get more sneak peeks into this amazing expansion!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
